I am the Group Administrator for the Kingsbury and Bracebridge DNA projects. In fact I have now published a set of books on the family history and have taken the position that the Kingsbury family originally was the Bracebridge family that became the lords of Kingsbury Hall in the village of Kingsbury, Warwickshire, England. I have discovered that the members of the Bracebridge family would change their name to de Kingsbury (meaning from Kingsbury) as they moved to other locations and it is my theory that this is how the Kingsbury family began. We do know that there was a Joseph de Kingsbury that seems to have become a substantial land owner in Dorset County, England by 1312 and then there was William de Kingsbury who is known to be the lord of Waldycroft Manor in Little Conard, Suffolk, England by 1368. It is this latter Kingsbury in Suffolk that apparently was the ancestor of much of the Kingsbury family in America today. If you are interested in pursuing this further I would be happy to discuss it with you. You may contact me at
